The company has explained that it has the certification of the National Security Scheme (ENS) high category and which has been the first cloud provider to accredit several security services in the catalog of STIC Products and Services (CPSTIC) of the CNI-CCN, which means that its infrastructure meets the highest security levels and compliance for state agencies and public organizations in Spain.

“All this grants Spanish organizations, including ‘startups’, large companies and the public sector, access to AWS infrastructure that allows them to make use of advanced technologies such as data analysis, artificial intelligence, databases, Internet of Things , machine learning and mobile or ‘serverless’ services, to drive innovation”, he detailed.

On the other hand, AWS has recalled that its new cloud infrastructure in Spain, the AWS Europe Region (Spain), allows customers to store their content in Spain, “with the assurance that they maintain full control over the location of their data.”

“This is a critical element for those who have data residency requirements. Customers developing applications in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation will have access to another secure AWS infrastructure region in the European Union, adhering to the highest standards of security, regulatory compliance, and data protection.”
